Custom Home Finishes

High-End Quality at a Fair Price

Custom Home Finishes is a small up and coming business established in Spring of 2017. Owned and run by me, Guy Hammink. Quality is paramount to me and my company, and to ensure that I do all the work myself. There is no disconnect between who you talk to and who shows up and does the work. I communicate with clients regularly about how progress is coming, if anything unexpected in the scale or scope of the job arises, and I'm flexible about adding or subtracting levels of detail to achieve the price range your looking for. I take jobs from all over the Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs. Specializing in single family home renovations, refinishing woodwork (enamel or stain cabinets, doors, trim, etc.) and 3 story and under exteriors.

Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I'm 31 and I've been painting for 6 years. At 18 I was a finishers apprentice at St. Paul Shipwrights. In 2015 I started as a grunt with a small family owned painting company. In less than 2 years and 4 raises I became Finishing Shop Foreman. In 2017 I branced off on my own..

We started in this industry in 2015.

We describe our business as Up and coming

Why did you stay with painting?

Painting is the least specialized trade there is. A painter's skillset is all encompassing

Review by in Cottage Grove, MN
Guy did an awesome job. Very meticulous and careful. Project was completed as discussed in the initial meeting with us adding a few add on’s. Guy was able to complete those at a very reasonable price.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
This was an excellent experience for us! On time, on budget and a very quality job. I would highly recommend this contractor and will gladly use them again when I have the need.

Guy listened to what I needed. Provided everything I wanted. Work exceeded my expectations. I will definitely hire again. Actually noticing other areas of my house that need attention.

Review by Jackie W. in Rosemount, MN
Work ranging from beautiful to cringe worthy. Guy Hammink appeared to be in over his head with our kitchen cabinet restain. The final result was uneven coverage which he blamed on over-sanding, the wood grain, inability to get products he preferred, and?finally?that he could do better work if we paid more (though we paid his bid in full). He became very hostile when areas with inconsistent coverage were discussed. Furthermore, he has stolen 2 of our cabinet pieces and refuses to return them unless we pay an additional $2300.00 (for work we?ll have to have redone in many areas to achieve the quality we expected. Jekyll and Hyde in his work and personality.
Response by Custom Home Finishes: Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry things didn't turn out the way you expected. I communicated what to expect 2 weeks before completion, with pictures, and was given the go-ahead. Upon completion, I was personally insulted as well as threatened of withholding payment. Eventually, we agreed to have me do more work to improve the look further. You were presented with a bill for the additional work and have refused to pay, along with threats including this false review. I encourage anyone to look at "Kitchen Cabinet Refinish" for details on the project.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
